A beautiful building on a quiet street greets you as you arrive here, with lovely stained glass windows. The staff here are great - friendly helpful welcoming and informative, you feel like a real person not just a room number. The hotel is lovely, with real character, so you dont feel like you are staying in some bland multinational chain. The king sized bed was large, clean and comfortable, and the room we stayed in had a deck to sit out on, with plenty of natural light. The bathtub was big, the water pressure was fantastic, with endless hot water, and the shower was fantastic...mmm! Just bring your own bath bubbles. though they do proved shampoo and soap. Our room had a heat pump, so if you are sensetive to getting too hot, do ask them for a room with one. They seem to be always aiming to improve things here - previous guests had said that the wireless broadband signal was weak, so they had put in a new box - the signal we had was great ( we had a few other issues with the broadband instead, but they were sorting those out, and were very helpful). The broadband was also very good value ( only $5 for our 3 night stay).
The breakfast room was lovely light and airy with glass doors out into to the small quiet garden, where we sat and read the papers over our toast...a simple breakfast but filling and good value. We gave up trying to find a cooked breakfast, as most places were closed over the weekend anyway!
And in the evenings we enjoyed the complimentary port - one of the many things that made us feel like welcome guests rather than just customers.
Thank you Owen, Chris, and all the staff that were so friendly to your kiwi guests!
